Notable Ghanaian gospel musician, Ohemaa Mercy, has started her sensitisation campaign to educate people about the novel coronavirus to help mitigate the spread.
The award-winning musician recently hit some markets including the Tespo Market to distribute sanitisers to people including the vulnerable, widows, aged, among others to support the national effort of the preventive and treatment measures against the spread of the COVID-19.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, the prominent musician is seen educating people about the guidelines outlined by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and President Nana Akufo-Addo including social distancing, hand washing and wearing the appropriate face mask to prevent contracting the COVID-19.
Ohemaa Mercy cautioned the market women to take the COVID-19 seriously because countries like Italy with well-equipped health facilities have been grounded by the coronavirus which has claimed thousands of lives.
She reiterated that these are indeed difficult times due to the global coronavirus pandemic that has taken lives, hospitalised many, crashed stock markets, and impacted global health systems.
Ohemaa Mercy called on the women to respond to duty by following prescribed guidelines to stop the spread and ensure the sick recover.
